Will Muschamp considering changes on South Carolina offense for Clemson game
Things haven’t been going well for South Carolina lately as four losses in its last five games has dropped the Gamecocks to 4-7 on the season. With a bye week this Saturday, Will Muschamp’s team will spend their time preparing for their annual rivalry game against No. 3 Clemson.
One of the biggest struggles the Gamecocks might face against the Tigers is along the offensive line as Dabo Swinney has a defensive line that is stout and can make life difficult for quarterbacks. With that in mind, Muschamp is considering some changes along his offensive front five.
“These last two weeks have not been acceptable,” Muschamp said.
Two changes that the coach has in mind are moving Sadarius Hutcherson from guard to tackle and putting Jaylen Nichols back in the lineup. In the last two games against Appalachian State and Texas A&M, the Gamecocks have rushed for just 66 total yards and no rushing touchdowns, something that will be needed against Clemson to keep the Tigers’ defense honest.
Muschamp has already received a vote of confidence that he will be back for the 2020 season, but another blowout loss to rival Clemson could spell the end of his tenure in Columbia.
